  1. Bombardier Flexity Deliveries

    It should have arrived in Toronto in the past couple of days. No word if it's at the dock yet, but I figure it should arrive there tomorrow at the latest. Dan

    You should really use the "quote" button, Dave. Otherwise, people may think that you're capable of posting in a more coherent fashion than you normally do. Dan

    I don't disagree with the use of a new number for this route - I suspect that the use of the 123 was simply as a temporary placeholder, as the only routes right now that go between Kipling Station and the Mall is the 123. Dan

    There were some mechanical aspects of the overhaul, although yes, the continued inability to operate in very cold weather - even after the work is done - is troubling. But at this point, they still intend to keep those 21 for longer than the rest of them to add peak service on King. Dan

    You may want to read the report. It won't make Shorncliffe anything, because there will be two buses allocated to this branch or route specifically at rush hours only. They are not realigning an existing branch of the route. Dan

    What part of Montreal is west of Toronto? Dan

    Forgot about the 21 that were done up to last another 4 or 5 years already? Dan

    What makes you think that they've been limiting the piece count? There are lots and lots of sets that are well over 2000 pieces that are available now. Dan

    There was also a period of time on Spadina shortly after the introduction of the Flexities where As were also scheduled as well. Dan

    I don' t have my notes handy, but I believe that there have been one or two Saturday unloadings. But they are certainly far from the norm, and especially not in the last while. That is also my assumption. Dan

    There is a pit at the bottom of the ramp. Still doesn't stop 100% of the drivers. Can I remind everyone about the incident where a wayward driver ended up on the platform at Spadina Station? Not only did they have to drive a very, very long way along the exposed rail, but they had to make it past a switch to get there. And that was after passing all of the signs and the pit at the bottom of the ramp. Dan

    It's not refurbed - look closely and you'll see that it still has its original doors and hasn't had the black at the bottom of the sides painted yet. It's currently on its way to Montréal to be refurbished. It's only had most of the paint done at this point. The maximum speed of the Grimsby Sub is 65mph. I suspect that once GO starts running on it more frequently that they will get CN to raise that figure. Dan

    So you're saying that a three foot long section of exposed rail, with a one foot long section of encased rail, followed by the exposed rail isn't enough? Because that's what's there at the end of the ramp right now. And what a driver has to go through AFTER all of the other obstacles that have been put in their way Again, you can make the best mousetrap that you want, and there will be a mouse to defeat it. Dan

    It wasn't. Was still sitting at the dock on Sunday. Dan

    They have done that already. There is a wheel trap of sorts at the entrance of the tunnel, and has been at least since the ramp to the tunnel was rebuilt 10 years ago. Still doesn't seem to stop people. I would suggest that all of the signage and measures in place are already stopping over 99% of people. Remember, this is only happening once every couple of months now. But for that last 1%, well, you can always find a better idiot. Dan
